    Platina Resources Limited (Platina or the Company) (ASX:PGM) (OTCMKTS:PTNUF) is pleased to advise that is has received a Research and Development refund claim totalling $1.1 million before costs.

    The claim covers eligible test work for the 2017/2018 financial year under the Federal Government's R&D tax incentive scheme. Under the R&D tax incentive scheme, companies with a turnover of less than $20 million which undertake research and development are entitled to a cash refund of 43.5 cents per dollar spent on eligible research and development in Australia.

    The Company research activities have focused on the development of commercial extraction technologies for the simultaneous production of scandium oxide, nickel, and cobalt from lateritic ores at its Platina Scandium Project in New South Wales. Scandium is presently only produced as a by-product from other processes. Neither dedicated large-scale scandium production processes nor processes capable of producing scandium from primary ores have been developed or commercialised.

    The results of the research and development activities have been incorporated into the Platina Scandium Project Definitive Feasibility Study ("DFS") announced on the 13th December 2018. The DFS confirmed the technical and financial viability of constructing a simple, low-strip ratio, open-cut mining operation and processing facility producing high purity scandium oxide.

    Corey Nolan, Managing Director of Platina Resources stated "The incentive provides direct assistance to companies like Platina to continue their research and development activities with a view to building value for shareholders. The receipt of the R&D rebate strengthens the Company's financial position as the Company moves towards the development phase".

    Thomson Resources (ASX:TMZ) is pleased to announce tin assays from its recent drill campaign at the Bygoo tin project near the old Ardlethan tin mine, NSW. Ten holes for 762m were drilled at Bygoo North to test the newly discovered shallow greisen zone that appeared to trend north-south through the historic Dumbrells Pit. One of those holes continued through the shallow Dumbrells zone to intersect the Main Greisen (east-west trending).

    In addition, some fifteen holes for 1036m were drilled in the Big Bygoo area, 2km south of Bygoo North.

    - Strong tin intercepts continue at shallow depths at Bygoo North

    - Further extension drilling strongly warranted

    - Significant tin results from Big Bygoo

    - Awaiting assay results from Harry Smith gold prospect drilling

    Bygoo North

    The Dumbrells drilling was from east to west to gauge true width of the greisens zones and resulted in several substantial tin intersections (see Figure 1 in link below). The standout results are -

    - BNRC056 10m at 0.6% Sn from 24m depth*

    - BNRC057 12m at 0.5% Sn from 17m depth

    - BNRC058 7m at 0.4% Sn from 18m depth

    - BNRC059 5m at 0.3% Sn from 31m depth

    - BNRC060 2m at 0.4% Sn from 27m depth

    - BNRC061 30m at 0.4% Sn from 40m depth

    - BNRC062 8m at 0.4% Sn from 26m depth

    - BNRC063 16m at 0.3% Sn from 18m depth

    - BNRC063 2m at 1.9% Sn from 38m depth

    - BNRC063 20m at 1.2% Sn from 49m depth (Main zone)

    All depths* quoted are "below surface", or vertical depth to the top of the intersection.

    The drilling has defined a wide corridor of mineralisation extending at least 200m around the historic pit area, with the better intercepts under and to the north of the pit. The zone is shallow and open to the north (see Figure 1 in link below, next page). Further follow up drilling is planned.

    The Main Zone intercept in BNRC063 is close by and similar to a previous intercept (BNRC040, 19m at 1.0%), but drilled at right angles to it.

    A new round of drilling is being planned to further extend and confirm the high-grade tin zones intersected. Diamond drilling will be employed to test the northern extension of Dumbrells and the eastern extension of Main zone, both of which are open.

    Big Bygoo

    Fifteen holes for 1036m were drilled at four prospects in the Big Bygoo area, 2km south of Bygoo North (see Figure 3 in link below). The holes targeted extensive historic workings. This was Thomson's first drilling program in the area and several promising intersections were made which warrant follow up. The standout intersections are -

    - BBRC02 3m at 1.0% Sn (Temora Line)

    - BBRC03 3m at 1.2% Sn (Temora Line)

    - BBRC06 24m at 0.6% Sn (Titanic)

    - BBRC07 4m at 1.4% Sn (Titanic)

    - BBRC08 2m at 1.0% Sn (Lone Hand)

    - BBRC12 2m at 0.6% Sn (Big Bygoo)

    The historic workings are scattered over the Ardlethan Granite outcrop over a 1 square kilometre area (see Figure 2 in link below). Initial drilling focused on a 100m long section of the Temora line of excavations. Two previous holes by Magnum Explorations NL in 1971 returned promising intersections (see Thomson's ASX quarterly of June 2016 for details) which were followed up by holes 1 and 2 of this program. A narrow, tin rich greisen was intersected, and a similar greisen was observed in hole 3, drilled close to an old shaft, 30m to the west.High grade results were also returned from drilling at Titanic, located 300m to the south. The Titanic line has one major working, but appears to trend ENE, parallel to the Lone Hand line 70m further south. The 24m at 0.6% intercept was cut at 46m downhole, with an initial rich zone of alteration running at 1.8% Sn over 4m, followed by a lower grade greisen lower down with 9m at 0.5% Sn. Follow up was partly successful to the east with hole 7 (4m at 1.4%) which is believed to have intersected the upper rich zone, but not the lower one.

    The two remaining prospects tested had poorer results. Three holes were drilled on the 400m Lone Hand line with one hole returning a narrow high-grade intersection. The eponymous "Big Bygoo" workings are the most extensive in the field with seven shafts over 150m strike and drives on at least three levels. Four holes were drilled directly under the workings but yielded just one significant intercept, 2m at 0.6% in hole 12.

    Harry Smith

    Results are pending from drilling at the Harry Smith gold prospect where 9 holes were drilled for 833m.

    Cervantes Corporation Limited (ASX:CVS) announces drill testing of gold zones at Albury Heath intersect impressive quartz lodes.

    - Focused drill testing of bonanza grade gold at Albury Heath completed

    - Seven holes for approximately 440 metres designed to test extent of two newly discovered gold zones:

    2m @ 67.2 g/t from 27m in AHP116, incl 1m @ 129.3 g/t from 27m

    5m @ 63.1 g/t from 32m in AHP134, incl 1m @ 202.8 g/t from 33m

    - Quartz lodes up to 26m downhole width (apparent, true width not known) intersected

    - Shallow intercepts in saprolite noted

    - RC drill sample assays awaited

    Drilling of two previously unrecognized bonanza-grade gold zones at the Albury Heath Prospect (P51/2937, see Figure 1 in link below) has now been completed. The drilling aimed to test the downdip, updip and strike extent of high grade zones intersected during Cervantes' previous drilling campaign on this prospect (announced on 16 May, 28 June, and 17 July, 2018).

    Previous intercepts are shown in Table 1(see link below). Drill hole locations are shown in Figure 2(see link below). Of note are two very high grade ("bonanza") zones intersected:

    2m @ 67.2 g/t from 27m in AHP116, incl 1m @ 129.3 g/t from 27m

    5m @ 63.1 g/t from 32m in AHP134, incl 1m @ 202.8 g/t from 33m

    These intercepts are located outside the historic underground workings and were not known from historic drilling.

    A typical cross section from the Albury Heath prospect is shown in Figure 3(see link below) with location of the section shown in Figure 2(see link below).

    Gold at Albury Heath is hosted in massive quartz veins, otherwise termed lodes, or secondary quartz veining within the host basalts, dolerites, and undifferentiated mafics.

    Geological logging is now completed; with significant quartz lodes and veins recognised. Table 2 (see link below) summarises the quartz lode intercept obtained.

    All one metre samples have been submitted for gold analysis and results are anxiously awaited. This data will be released once received.

    Cervantes has an open Prospectus, closing on or before 18 January 2019, to raise $700,000 by issuing 70,000,000 shares at an issue price of $0.01 per share, together with one (1) free attaching New Option for every two (2) Shares subscribed for and issued.

    The Company is hopeful of receiving and releasing the anxiously awaited assay results prior to closing of the prospectus on or before 18 January 2019. Funds raised will be used to pursue the RAB drilling of five new potential areas, not previously tested, and for follow-up drilling of the current RC drilling programme. Cervantes also intends to pursue a deep drilling programme on the Primrose Project at Paynes Find targeting Gold, Nickel and Cobolt.

    About the Albury Heath Project

    The Albury Heath Project is centred on the historic Albury Heath gold mine. Gold production from underground workings during the period 1948 to 1957 totaled 2,204 oz at an average head grade of 47.8g/t or 1.54oz/t.

    Gold mineralisation is associated with quartz veining, quartz stringers, quartz stockworks, and wall rock alteration located in a major regional fault zone that trends north-northeasterly across the eastern side of the Meekatharra Greenstone Belt. The mineralisation occurs primarily in quartz-sulphide veins that are up to 4m in width. The main vein strikes north-northeasterly and dips steeply at 75o - 80o to the east-southeast.

    Cervantes wholly owns six Prospecting Licences covering the Albury Heath mine and its surrounds (P51/2937 and P51/2997 to 3001). These comprise an area totaling 10.8km2 that cover the northerly and southerly extent of the main controlling structure.

    Oventus Medical Ltd (ASX:OVN) is pleased to announce the launch of the O2Vent(R) Optima device in Australia, an important addition to the Company's sleep treatment platform.

    Key points:

    - New Oventus O2Vent(R) Optima oral device for the treatment of sleep apnoea launched in Australian market

    - O2Vent(R) Optima is a compact, lightweight addition to the Oventus sleep treatment platform, with a reduced cost of goods in comparison with original titanium O2Vent(R)

    - O2Vent(R) Optima incorporates Oventus' proprietary Airway Technology and is compatible with Oventus ExVent(TM) valve technology which will also be launched in 2019

    - Clinical trials have shown that Oventus' proprietary airway alone or in combination with ExVent(TM) valve technology dramatically improves treatment outcomes for sufferers of obstructive sleep apnoea

    The O2Vent(R) Optima is the newest product in the O2Vent(R) oral device range. It offers a new treatment alternative for the potentially fatal condition, obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA).

    The O2Vent(R) Optima is a customised 3D printed nylon oral appliance that advances the jaw forward to open the airway and incorporates the Oventus proprietary Airway Technology to improve the effectiveness of oral appliance therapy. This device is lighter than the original O2Vent(R)and less complex to make. The combination of reduced material costs and lower manufacturing times bring down the cost of goods and will shorten timeframes on delivery of devices to patients.

    Oventus Managing Director and CEO, Dr Chris Hart commented, "We are excited to be launching the O2Vent(R) Optima as the next generation O2Vent(R) product addition to our sleep treatment platform. This lightweight, durable device incorporating Oventus Airway Technology offers a more discreet and flexible alternative to those that cannot tolerate CPAP therapy".

    The launch of O2Vent(R) Optima is the first of two new products coming to market in 2019. The second product being a valve that integrates with select O2Vent(R) devices to naturally increase airflow and airway stability. The valve is called the ExVent(TM) and has been clinically proven to dramatically increase the success rates of traditional mouthguard devices for sleep apnoea sufferers.

    The ExVent(TM) was developed in collaboration with CSIRO and Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA) during the three year, $2.95 million Federally funded Cooperative Research Centres Project grant. ExVent(TM) is due to be released in Australia during Q1 calendar year 2019.

    Following release of O2Vent(R) Optima and ExVent(TM) in Australia these products will be released in North American and European markets.

    A CSIRO news release on Oventus' product innovations led to national media coverage on Friday 4 January, including on both Channel Seven and Nine News. The Seven News coverage can be seen on the Oventus news and media web page.

    WA-focused gold exploration and development company Classic Minerals Limited (ASX:CLZ) ("Classic", or "the Company") is pleased to announce that it has exercised the Option and acquired a 100% interest in the Kat Gap Gold Project covering exploration licences E74/422 and E74/467; subsequent to meeting all the conditions precedent.


    - Option to acquire a 100% interest in two highly strategic exploration licences, E74/422 and E74/467 (Kat Gap Gold Project) has been successfully exercised. Classic now owns 100% of the project.

    - Kat Gap is an advanced gold exploration project covering 37.5 km2, over a 10km section of the western granite/greenstone contact at the southern end of the Forrestania Greenstone Belt.

    - Recent RC drilling by Classic at Kat Gap has returned outstanding high-grade gold intercepts from shallow depths including:

    5m @ 14.10g/t Au from 17m in FKGRC001

    12m @ 7.52g/t Au from 39m in FKGRC006

    8m @ 19.05g/t Au from 32m in FKGRC008

    8m @ 7.14g/t Au from 82m in FKGRC010

    12m @ 5.39g/t Au from 30m in FKGRC012

    4m @ 9.53g/t Au from 70m in FKGRC014

    10m @ 30.78g/t Au from 28m in FKGRC018

    10m @ 4.18g/t Au from 26m in FKGRC022

    9m @ 8.08g/t Au from 95m in FKGRC025

    3m @ 8.33g/t Au from 22m in FKGRC039

    3m @ 14.10g/t Au from 10m in FKGRC042

    3m @ 9.64g/t Au from 20m in FKGRC043

    - Kat Gap has a historical resource estimate (2003) of 283,000t @ 3.9g/t for 36,000 ounces of gold, not classified or reported in compliance with JORC (2012) *.

    *In accordance with clause 5.12 of the ASX Listing Rules, CLZ notes that the historic resource estimations were not reported in compliance with the JORC Code (2012), or any earlier adaptations of the JORC Code. A Competent Person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimates as mineral resources in accordance with the JORC Code (2012). It is uncertain that following evaluation and/or further exploration work that the historical estimates will be able to be reported as mineral resources in accordance with the JORC Code (2012).


    The Kat Gap Project is strategically located approximately 70km south-south east of the Company's Forrestania Gold project containing the Lady Magdalene and Lady Ada gold resources. Kat Gap adjoins the Forrestania Nickel project currently operated by Western Areas Ltd.

    Classic has purchased the Kat Gap project from private company Sulphide Resources Pty Ltd for a total consideration of A$250,000 plus GST, and a 2% NSR royalty on production from E74/422 and E74/467 (or any replacement tenements).

    Classic CEO Dean Goodwin said:

    "We are very pleased to have finalised this transaction as the Kat Gap tenements will significantly strengthen the Forrestania Gold Project as a whole. We now control over 480km2 of the highly prospective Forrestania region, in an area we firmly believe has the potential to host a world-class gold deposit.

    Drilling campaigns by Classic over the last 6 months have shown the high-grade potential of this project. We have intersected some outstanding shallow zones of gold mineralisation over a 200m strike length with gold open at depth and along strike in both directions. I think we are onto something quite special but only time will tell.

    The next stage is to commence an RC drilling program extending the known mineralised zone north and south from our current 200m long drilling area. We plan to focus our attention on an 800m long section of the main granite-greenstone contact where existing historical drilling is on 100m spaced lines. Our current 200m long drilling area sits right in the middle of this 800m long section. We firmly believe that significant gold mineralisation is hiding between these old drill lines. This work will give us a pretty good idea of how good this system really is. If we start getting similar results to what we have seen already in these new drill holes then we'll know we have a tiger by the tail".


    Historically the project contains a shallow unmined gold deposit discovered in the 1990s, which was the subject of resource estimations and scoping study by Sons of Gwalia in 2003. Resources were estimated at 283,000t @ 3.9g/t for 36,000 ounces at a 1.5g/t cut-off grade. This resource estimate was not reported in compliance with the JORC Code (2012). Previous high-grade RC drill intercepts include 15 m @ 15.1 g/t Au from 39 m depth and 6 m @ 19.1 g/t from 17 m depth. The open-ended deposit lies within a 5 km long geochemical gold anomaly that has seen very little drill testing, and there is potential for the discovery of a substantial gold deposit within the project area. Previous exploration work includes airborne geophysical surveys; aircore, RAB, RC and diamond drilling; and soil geochemical surveys.

    Classic has drilled a total of 57 holes for 3891m at Kat Gap over the last 6 months from May to November 2018. The early drilling was focused on testing the up-dip and down dip projection of previous historical high-grade gold intersections along the main granite-greenstone contact adjacent to a cross-cutting Proterozoic dyke. Later drilling was then concentrated on an area north and south along strike from the cross-cutting Proterozoic dyke covering a strike length of some 200m on the granite-greenstone contact.

    Classic has completed 4 drilling campaigns at Kat Gap all returning significant high-grade gold intercepts. The majority of the drilling is relatively shallow, down to approximately 60m vertical depth below surface. The main area of drilling has been focused primarily on and adjacent to the contacts of a cross-cutting Proterozoic dyke where it intersects the main granite-greenstone contact. At this location the gold mineralisation has been significantly enriched. Better results from the first three drilling programs include, 8m @ 19.05 g/t Au from 32m including 4m @ 28.80 g/t Au in FKGRC008; 12m @ 7.52 g/t Au from 39m including 2m @ 20.20 g/t Au in FKGRC006; 12m @ 5.39 g/t Au from 30m including 1m @ 20.80 g/t Au in FKGRC012; 10m @ 30.78 g/t Au from 28m including 2m @ 116.10 g/t Au in FKGRC018; 9m @ 8.08 g/t Au from 95m including 1m @ 62.30 g/t Au in FKGRC025 and 10m @ 4.18 g/t Au from 26m including 1m @ 15.10 g/t Au in FKGRC022.

    Several deeper RC holes have also been drilled to approximately 120m to test the main contact zone at depth. These holes were primarily designed to test a potential plunge zone detected by the shallow RC holes. Better results from these holes include, 9m @ 8.08 g/t Au from 95m including 1m @ 62.30 g/t Au in FKGRC025 and 1m @ 18.80 g/t Au from 86m in FKGRC026. The plunge line is wide open along strike and down dip.

    The last drilling program in November incorporated a series of holes testing the up-dip potential of previous high-grade gold intersects together with a few holes testing further along strike to the north following up on previous historical RAB and RC holes. Better results from the shallow up-dip drill holes included: 3m @ 38.33 g/t Au from 21m including 1m @ 111.00 g/t Au in FKGRC039; 5m @ 5.61 g/t Au from 6m including 1m @ 12.00 g/t Au in FKGRC040; 2m @ 7.86 g/t Au from 19m in FKGRC041; 3m @ 14.10 g/t Au from 10m including 1m @ 37.40 g/t Au in FKGRC042 and 3m @ 9.64 g/t Au from 20m including 1m @ 25.10 g/t Au in FKGRC043.

    All RC Holes drilled along strike to the north testing the extent of the main granite-greenstone contact lode intersected gold mineralisation with the best result of 5m @ 4.07 g/t Au from 66m including 1m @ 11.50 g/t Au coming from FKGRC051. The next closest historical RC hole is some 100m further along strike to the north.

    Future drilling programs at Kat Gap will focus mainly on testing an 800m long section of the main granite - greenstone contact where current drill line spacings are 100m apart. Current drilling is located right in the middle of this 800m long section. Interpretation suggests that significant gold mineralisation exists between these sections similar to what has been identified in the last 4 drilling programs. Several deep orientated diamond holes to probe the system to 300m vertical below surface have also been designed.

    Historical RC drilling at Kat Gap is currently on 100m - 200m line spacings. There is strong potential for additional mineralisation to be identified up-dip, down-dip and along strike, both outside of and within the existing RC drill coverage. Only about half of the 5 km long >50 ppb Au gold-in-soil anomaly has been tested by RC drilling along the granite/greenstone contact.

    Classic has planned follow up RC and diamond holes with drilling scheduled for late this month.


    The FGP Tenements (excluding Kat Gap and Lady Lila) are registered in the name of Reed Exploration Pty Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of ASX listed Hannans Ltd (ASX:HNR). Classic has acquired 80% of the gold rights on the FGP Tenements from a third party, whilst Hannans has maintained its 20% interest in the gold rights. For the avoidance of doubt Classic Ltd owns a 100% interest in non-gold rights on the Kat Gap and Lady Lila Tenements including but not limited to nickel, lithium and other metals.

    The FGP contains an existing Mineral Resource of 5.3 Mt at 1.39 g/t for 240,000 ounces of gold, classified and reported in accordance with the JORC Code (2012), with a recent Scoping Study (see ASX Announcement released 2nd May 2017) suggesting both the technical and financial viability of the project. The current post-mining Mineral Resource for Lady Ada, Lady Magdalene and Lady Lila is tabulated below (see link below).

    Additional technical detail on the Mineral Resource estimation is provided, further in the text below and in the JORC Table 1 as attached to ASX announcements dated 14th March 2017 and 21st March 2017.

    Collaborate Corporation Limited (ASX:CL8) (Collaborate or the Company) is pleased to announce the execution of a controlled placement deed (CPD) with Acuity Capital for up to $3 million of equity over a 30-month period.

    - Acuity Capital provides placement facility of up to $3 million.

    - Facility provides Collaborate with control over the placement process.

    - Provides access to funding for growth of Collaborate's mobility and peer-to-peer businesses.

    Under the terms of the CPD, Collaborate retains full control of all aspects of initiating the placement process: having sole discretion as to whether or not to utilise the CPD, the quantum of issued shares, the minimum issue price of shares and the timing of each placement tranche (if any).

    There are no obligations on Collaborate to utilise the CPD and Collaborate may terminate the CPD at any time with 5 Business Days' notice, without cost or penalty. Acuity Capital and the CPD do not place any restrictions at any time on Collaborate raising capital through other methods.

    If the Company elects to utilise the CPD, Collaborate is able to set a floor price (at its sole discretion) and the final issue price will be calculated as the greater of that floor price set by Collaborate and a 10% discount to a Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP) of Collaborate shares over a period of Collaborate's choosing (again at the sole discretion of Collaborate).

    The CPD is a valuable tool as an additional funding alternative. Placements made under the CPD will principally be used to provide funding for customer acquisition, to support the launch of new initiatives and for general working capital.

    As collateral for the CPD, Collaborate has agreed to place 20,000,000 fully paid ordinary shares at nil consideration to Acuity Capital (Collateral Shares). The Company may, at any time, terminate the CPD and buy back the Collateral Shares for nil consideration (subject to shareholder approval).

    Collaborate and Acuity Capital have agreed to a one-off issue of 2,500,000 Shares at a deemed issue price of $0.015 per Share in consideration for entering in to the CPD (Transaction Fee Shares). There are no other establishment or placement fees required to be paid to Acuity Capital.

    CEO and Executive Director, Mr Chris Noone, said "The CPD enables the Company to access funds as and when it requires and avoids immediate shareholder dilution at the present share price while providing funding for the growth of the business and to support the launch of the previously announced car subscription product."

    Shares under the CPD will be issued under the Company's available placement capacities.

    White Cliff Minerals Limited (ASX:WCN) ("White Cliff" or the "Company") is pleased to report that assay results have been received from the new mineralised structures identified 2-4 kilometres east of the Aucu Gold Project in the Kyrgyz Republic.


    - New outcropping gold and copper zones identified 2-4 kilometres east of Aucu

    - Rock sample results include grades up to 6.7 g/t gold and up to 7.8% copper

    - Mineralised structures now identified and mapped over an 8km wide zone

    Mapping and rock sampling was conducted over a large area based on the results from the recent soil geochemistry sampling program (ASX release 9th December 2018). The mapping identified multiple new shear zones and assays of rock samples have identified significant gold and copper mineralisation with gold assays up to 6.7 g/t gold and copper assays up to 7.8% copper. The sampling confirms that the scale of the Aucu gold and copper system extends over at least 8 kilometres west to east and is still untested to the south.

    The copper and gold results are associated with both porphyry and the overlying sandstones. Mineralisation occurs as within shear zones in both lithologies and as a layer of thermally altered magnetite rich skarn that is sandwiched between the sandstone and porphyry.

    The highest copper and gold results are associated with chalcopyrite and copper oxides (malachite and azurite) usually within shear zones cutting through the sandstones and porphyries.

    Moderate copper grades (1-2% Cu) and lower gold grades (0.1-0.7 g/t Au) are associated with the magnetite rich skarn. Key results are summarised in Table 1(see link below).

    Geological Interpretation

    The current geological interpretation is that the whole area is underlain by a larger mineralised system with an upper zone of structurally controlled epithermal gold mineralisation within a broad copper porphyry alteration zone.

    Gold mineralisation now extends at least 8 kilometres from west to east and is currently open to the west, south and north. Copper mineralisation is currently associated with central porphyry and large alteration halo with the possibility that further mineralised porphyries have been identified to the east of Aucu.

    Current Exploration

    Due to heavy winter snows and ice build-up on the roads the Company has unable to safely conduct drilling on the main targets and so has concentrated on testing the gold potential along the floor of the main valley. The cost of drilling through frozen gravels to obtain small samples has proven prohibitive so the Company has opted to used excavators to bulk sample the alluvial material. Prior to winter closing access to the Chanach valley the Company completed 13 bulk samples to 5 metres depth with each hole consisting of approximately 35 cubic metres. Each metre in depth was sampled separately and assessed for alluvial gold, and rock and clay particle size distribution. 40-60 kilogram subsamples were collected and manually panned down to a concentrate. These samples will be submitted to the laboratory for analysis shortly.

    Project Background: Aucu Gold Deposit

    The Aucu gold deposit currently contains an Inferred Gold Mineral Resource above a cut-off grade of 1 g/t gold of 2.95 Million tonnes grading 5.1 g/t gold for 484,000 ounces of contained gold. The new resource reported in May 2018 represented a 60% increase in contained gold over the previously reported April 2017 inferred gold resource.

    The project also contains an Inferred Copper Mineral Resource of 17.2Mt at 0.36% copper containing 64,000 tonnes of copper.

    The drilling defining these resources has tested less than 5% of the identified mineralised structures and is currently open in all directions. The exploration carried out in this announcement has identified substantial additional potential over a large area on the eastern side of the project with rock chip samples of outcropping shear zones, veins and skarn alteration carrying gold grades of up to 6.7 g/t gold and 7.8% copper. As yet, no exploration has been conducted to the south or to the west of the main porphyry system.

    In addition to the hard rock potential, the Company has identified visible gold in the alluvial river gravels that extend 16 kilometres from west to east across the Aucu project area.

    The directors of Nova Minerals Limited (Nova or Company) (ASX:NVA) (FRA:QM3) are pleased to announce encouraging drill results at the Officer Hill Gold Project in joint venture with Newmont Tanami Pty Ltd (Newmont) (a wholly owned subsidiary of Newmont Mining Corporation). The Officer Hill Project within EL23150 covers 206km2 and is located 34km south west of the Callie deposit which is part of Newmont's Tanami Gold mine operation. The exploration program is targeting Callie-style mineralisation within EL23150.

    The best assayed results to date are from diamond drillhole OHD0003 with 4m @ 2.49 g/t Au, including 0.5m @ 12.6 g/t Au. A second intersection below this returned 1m @ 19.69 g/t Au (see Table 1 and Figure 1 in link below).

    Mineralisation within OHD0003 is quartz-chlorite-pyrite vein hosted. Veins are present within variably bedded sandstone and laminated siltstones. Alteration is dominated by the regional green schist facies metamorphic assemblage.

    An aeromagnetic and gravity survey was acquired across the entirety of the project area and will be used to assist the geological interpretation.

    NVA Managing Director, Mr. Avi Kimelman said:

    "We are encouraged by the initial results returned from the diamond drilling program on the Officer Hill Gold Project.

    "Concurrent with Officer Hill exploration program, Nova is in the process of planning its next stage of exploration and reconnaissance activities for 2019 at the Estelle Gold Project and Thomson Brothers Lithium project operations and corporate development strategy which will deliver a parallel approach to enhance shareholder value across our company's project portfolio."

    Nova will separately update the market on the current and proposed 2019 exploration and corporate development programs across the company's project portfolio in due course.
